How to I change the computer name ProSeries uses?

How to I change the computer name ProSeries uses? All of our workstation were copied from a standard image with ProSeries preinstalled on it.  When a file is locked, regardless of the computer, it says it is locked by the original computer's name, not the updated computer name of the copy.  How can I update the computer name in ProSeries?

The computer name is stored in the ProWinXX.ini file under the [Networking] section. You need to change the WorkStationName key and you may need to change the WorkStationID key.

For ProSeries 2019, the ProWin19,ini file is stored on each workstation here, by default, C:\ProWin19\32bit.

Thanks!  That was it.  I had checked it there, but apparently on a computer that had it reinstalled and had the correct name.
